Die, military and other industry applications Carbide round blade is very common

International enterprises are more focused on the maintenance of the brand, especially those with a hundred years of history of well-known foreign companies, they set up at the beginning, not demanding sales of the number of profits, but the focus of enterprise development, brand building. They promote the quality of their products to customers, how to improve the production efficiency of products, as well as to reduce the number of production costs for customers, this brand-oriented publicity strategy for the beginning of the development of enterprises laid a good foundation.

Chinese enterprises are just the opposite, they emphasize to attract customers at low prices, pay attention to immediate interests, price war, resulting in a vicious competition in the tool market, and low prices, making product quality can not be guaranteed, the customer lost on the domestic round blade confidence.

The following is a Chinese brand slitter round blade of the main market segments:

(1) the automotive industry, the processing characteristics of the automotive industry First, large quantities, production lines, and second, processing conditions are relatively fixed. In order to optimize the production, improve quality and efficiency of constant machinery, the automotive industry on the processing efficiency of the tool and the service life of the very stringent requirements. At the same time, due to the use of assembly line operations, in order to avoid the blade for the entire production line downtime, resulting in huge economic losses, it is usually a mandatory unified tool change. The quality of the tool stability is also a unique high demand.

(2) processing characteristics of the aerospace industry First, high precision machining, the second is difficult to process materials. Most of the materials processed by the industry are of high toughness and strength are very high temperature alloys and nickel-titanium alloy (such as INCONEL718, etc.), making a lot of carbide round blade useless.

(3) large turbines, turbines, generators and diesel engine manufacturers of these enterprises to process most of the parts are bulky and expensive, in the processing, to ensure the accuracy of the parts to be processed and less waste is essential, so these Tungsten steel round blades are also often used in the industry.

(4) the use of CNC machine tools more business as the saying goes, "good horse with a good saddle", in order to improve processing efficiency and product quality, give full play to the use of CNC machine tools, carbide inserts are more likely to achieve the desired results.

(5) foreign-funded enterprises in these enterprises, tend to pay more attention to the production efficiency and quality assurance. As a lot of foreign-funded enterprises is the introduction of foreign machine tools and equipment, the use of its import country round blade is a matter of course. In addition, there are many other industries, such as mold industry, military enterprises, such as the application of carbide round inserts are also very common.

Artificial diamond semiconductor substrate to promote the global superhard material cutting machine market

A recent report by the Transparency Market Research Institute (TMR) predicts that by 2024, the market for superhard material cutting machines will reach $ 1.81 billion. The global market for superhard material cutting machines mainly includes spark erosion machines (EDM) and laser cutting machines.

In 2015, the market size of only 730 million US dollars, which means that in 2016-2024 years, the market is expected to achieve 10.8% compound annual growth rate. In terms of market capacity, by the end of 2024, the market is expected to reach 6661 units.

The report also confirms that the three major players in the global marketplace - Machinery Systems, Inc., DMG MORI and GF Machining Solutions - account for 44.3% of the total market capitalization. Therefore, as can be seen from the report, the current lack of competition in the market, can not depress the price of cutting machinery.

In the long run, competition among companies will become increasingly tense, resulting in a wider range of competitive pricing, to meet greater demand. However, in the next few years, the threat of new competitors will help to maintain a relatively low mechanical prices, because the new company wants to cut the world in the superhard material cutting machine market, must invest huge capital.

"The growing demand for man-made diamond semiconductor substrates is a major driver for the development of the global market for superhard material cutting machines," said a TMR analyst. "The physical properties of synthetic diamonds provide better heat transfer management, This feature helps semiconductor designers get out of the traditional dilemma of power density and reliability issues when scaling semiconductor footprints. "

In addition to this application, the report also highlights the growing use of ultrahard materials cutting machines in other areas such as mining, defense, semiconductor and electronics industries.
